Family Support Group

What is NAMI Family Support Group?

NAMI Family Support Groups, offered by NAMI Affiliates in communities across the country, are free, confidential and safe groups of families helping families who live with mental health challenges in their lives. Families join a caring group of individuals helping one another through their learned wisdom. Families are no longer alone and they have a renewed sense of hope for their loved one living with mental health challenges.      

What are the goals of NAMI Family Support Group?

  • To encourage, support and empower people

  • To provide this support free of charge and confidentially

  • To make this support available to any family member of an individual living with a mental illness

  • To provide a support group that is led by trained facilitators who are also family members of an individual living with mental illness themselves
